Netzach in Chessed: the ultimate endurance in love is letting go. We wave the barley offering during the counting of the omer: this is our animal nature. When we elevate it, we elevate the world because we are at the top of the food chain, we consume everything. We start our journey towards intimacy at chessed. Moshe, Aaron and Miriam are not mentioned in the Haggadah; the rabbis are mentioned in order to illustrate the process of questioning. Why does Rabbi Akiva have to study all night at the seder even though he knew the Haggadah by heart? (1) we are always redefining freedom, (2) to elevate his students. The word arev has the following meanings: sweeten, boundary, confusion, light and dark, Haarev (maariv), west, Arab, raven, eruv, erev. Pesach means the mouth that speaks. Paro (Pharaoh) means pey-rah, bad mouth. Counting omer is done by mouth, aloud, it must be spoken. The words birth and exodus are the same in Hebrew: tzeh-tzah. When you are present you are connecting with G*d; YKVK is the verb to be. When we can see the essence (shem) of things, we have moved out of M&M/electric shock (carrot and stick) motivation. YK: breathe out, contraction. VK: breathe in, expansion. Seeing G*d in everything is like breath, it is letting G*d be your teacher. Then we have to bless the bad/contraction.
